Serving as a base for this unusual art piece is a rectangle of warm gold wool. Attached on top is a piece of orange wool and a segment of a hand-dyed dryer sheet. On top of the entire composition is one hand-made bead created from tightly woven fabric strips. Decorative hand stitching was used to secure the layers together and add pizazz to the entire composition. Zoom in to see the detail of both the stitching and the fabrics.
One of the things I enjoy about fall is the aroma of mulled cider simmering on the stove. The warmth of the cup as I cradle it in my hand, and the tangy flavor all remind me of the beautiful fall colors, the crunch of the leaves beneath my feet and the chill in the air. Those experiences inspired me to call this item Mulled Cider.
The entire grouping was attached to an 8”x10” frame covered with white canvas. Added to the back of the frame is a paper barrier to protect it from pests and dust, a sawtooth hanger, silicone bumpers to help keep the frame level as well as aide in ventilation and an itemized label describing the art piece.
This wonderful specimen, one of my absolute favorites, would make a lovely addition to your home.
